Prayer for the phone addicted

prayer for the phone addicted

You hold it in the palm of your hand

It is small enough to fit in your pocket

Yet it controls your life

You answer every beep, flash and buzz

With Pavlovian single-mindedness

 

You know it’s not good for you

You find yourself scattered and disconnected

You are continually distracted and unable to focus

You know it is creating a barrier between you and your best self

 

May you have the wisdom to set boundaries of time and space

May you have the ability to switch off notifications and alerts

May you have the strength to ignore the buzz and be present with those you love

May you fall asleep without the flicker of blue across your face

 

May you remember that this fits in the palm of your hand

That there is an off button

And that you are in control

Amen
